Chuck Versus the Muuurder S04E19 (NBC)

Chuck is an American science-fiction television program created by Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak. The series is about an “average computer-whiz-next-door” who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend Bryce Larkin, a rogue CIA agent, which happens to embed the world’s greatest spy secrets into his brain. This is called the intersect.

From the Wikipedia entry on Chuck.

While Chuck has to deal with his new situation, he gets to enjoy the company of Sarah, working for the CIA, and Casey, working for the DOD. They use him as an asset to accomplish their missions, which surprisingly happen around town (?).

Chuck has just started its third season and it’s still entertaining. The mix between an everyday guy and espionage doesn’t get boring, since the character of Chuck actually puts us in these situations as well. I recommend it, though it’s not for everybody.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Chuck is put in charge of finding a spy for the Intersect trials. They have four candidates, but someone murders the one that Chuck had chosen. Ellie is working on her father’s work, but she has no way of knowing how dangerous it is. She’s being spied on by Director Bentley, plus the Orion laptop has got a few ideas of its own.

Ellie is being spied upon by Director Bentley, who plans on using the results of her research for her own purposes.

Chuck is put in charge of finding new Intersect candidates. Lewis is a the über-hacker, Josie is the face reader, Damian a former Navy SEAL and Brody is another Chuck.

They are tested. When Chuck picks Brody, someone kills him in Castle. Devon tells Chuck that Ellie has been working on her dad’s computer. Some woman gave it to her. Devon says that she is making progress. Chuck confronts Director Bentley about giving the computer to her sister. They find Brody’s body.

Some dudes from LargeMart kidnap Big Mike. It’s because Lester and Jeff kidnapped their pig. Morgan has a parley with the LargeMart. After they agree to the ceasefire, someone takes the pig.

A while later a bomb almost kills Damian. The surveillance footage is offline. Castle is on lockdown. They question the remaining candidates and Director Bentley. They find another bomb. It was strapped to the bottom of the chair where the others were interrogated. It points to Lewis, the bomb expert. Damian caught some more shrapnel. They want to find Lewis. He gives weapons to everyone and go after him. Casey finds the pig. Bentley goes back to the Instersect room in Castle. They find Lewis dead. He says that the killer is Damian. He’s got a large bomb in a disused boombox covered in sand. Bentley shoots Damian in the arm, and it activates the bomb. There are too many wires or booby traps. Bentley takes the bomb and goes into the Intersect room. It’s the only room that will contain the blast. Bentley closes the door manually since the power is out. Chuck hotwires the door to open to save Bentley and the pig.

Beckman tells the team that there will be no new Intersect or recruit. For now, Chuck will be the only Intersect. Bentley is being reassigned. She tells Chuck that he should reconsider using Ellie. She’s very talented and is the only person who could solve the Intersect problem. Devon tells Chuck that he took care of the computer when he hasn’t.

Chuck brings Kevin Bacon back up to Morgan.

Beckman tells the team that Damian was hired to bomb Castle. Vivian Volkoff hired him for $10 million.

Ellie doesn’t know it but the Orion computer is scanning her and displaying some strange files named Agent X.
